So I sampled Gil Scott Heron and mixed a track

I have almost finished the arrangement and mixing, but could use a few pointers from some good ears on any frequencies that sticks out, or anything else that annoys the ears. I don't know if my bass is to heavy with the kick, or if the mid is clear enough (particular in the ending, when the track is...

No grid in new clips?

Hey all

Does anyone know if it's possible to turn of the grid as a default for new clips? So whenever I create a new clip, the grids are turned of (Cmd+4 isn)?

Re: Live 8 on a 13" retina display (pictures)

^ Nice try, I give it a 6/10. Anyhoo, I'm buying a rMBP later this month (and yes, I do music production for a living, should "Goddard" actually be serious about this). I'll probably have it set to full resolution, this fixes the pixelation problem from what I've seen, plus I'll have a lot more spa...

Live 8 on a 13" retina display (pictures)

Hey all I just got a new 13" Macbook Pro with the retina display. A user pm'ed me and asked if I could share some pics of how Ableton Live looks on the new screen. I thought I would post them here, as more people are probably wondering the same. It really looks quite awful. I hope they decide to imp...

Re: Live 9 retina support?

That is bad. Ableton Live looks close to awful on a 13" retina display. It actually looks so pixelated that it interferes and slows down my workflow :(

Re: Desk used on Live 9 promo shots?

I don't think it looks homemade at all. But nobody can identify the designer?

Re: Desk used on Live 9 promo shots?

I don't think it's homemade. The legs look industrially sculpted.

Any other suggestions?

The clean lines, the natural wood pared with steel legs. I don't know - I'm Danish, and have a liking for Scandinavian design. Maybe that's it…

Desk used on Live 9 promo shots?

Hi all

Can anyone identify what desks they used in the promo shots on the site for Ableton 9? (https://www.ableton.com/en/live/new-in-9/)

They look really great I think…

Re: Post your set up and your sexy cat...

This is my setup, where I spend many fun hours each day. I took a decision a while back to completely get off the gear lust wagon, and just focus on making music with Live's built in synths, effects and tools (I use Suite). I feel I have everything I need in this setup to make electronic music of vi...

Looking for original track Nights Over Egypt to sample

Hey all

I am looking for a lossless copy of The Jones Sister's track Nights Over Egypt. I haven't been able to find it anywhere! Does anyone in here know where I can find a lossless copy? Wanna sample some stuff from it…

Re: Creating a Lush 808 Sub Bass Tutorial

Hey man

Cool that you put down this tutorial! There is another tutorial on YouTube from Point Blank producing the same bass sound, just only using built in tools and a slightly different technique, for people that are interested:
